2022 Boys and Girls State Basketball Tournaments to be Played in the Same Week

The Nebraska Schools Activities Association has announced that the 2022 girls and boys state basketball tournaments will both take place during the same week.  The NSAA announced that both tournaments will be held in Lincoln during the week of March 7 through March 12 next year.  The tournaments are usually played during separate weeks with the girls tournament first and the boys tournament the following week.  The change comes because the University of Nebraska will be hosting the 2022 Big Ten Conference Wrestling Championships March 5th and 6th in Lincoln at Pinnacle Bank Arena.  The state basketball championship finals will be played Friday, March 11 and Saturday March 12, 2022.  A full schedule for the 2022 girls and boys basketball postseason and state championship events will be released at a later date.
